I've been having fun dressing my baby girl in white and taking her monthly photos. I get a lot of questions on where her outfits and props are from, so I figured I'd share all the photos here and shoppable images at the bottom. Note that each Instagram post has multiple photos. You will need to click through and go to Instagram to see the rest of the photos. Enjoy!

Oops, one month photos of my baby girl belated by a full 2 weeks! She was so sleepy her first month, but has really perked up and we get to see her bright eyes so much more. I thought that by this time I would be back on my game, but I've had soooo many absent-minded moments lately. The most ridiculous and least consequential was me starting Whole30 yesterday because in my mind it was already June 1! There are definitely worse mistakes to make. If you are interested in Whole30, join my unofficial support group for moms on Whole30 -- there is a focus on breastfeeding moms, but all women are welcome (link in bio or here --> http://bit.ly/Whole30-Moms) Also the amazing headband in the second photo was a gift from @sweetscarletblooms.

Happy two months! This sweet 👶🏻 girl shares the most heartwarming grins, will stare at artwork for long periods and even crane her head backward to check out artwork. She has given us one 8+ hour stretch of sleep at night, which gives us hope! She also falls asleep instantly in the carrier, which makes getting big brother to school a lot easier. _____ It's a good thing this letterboard came with lots of extra letters because her brother keeps claiming any letters that appear in his name. It's probably time I buy him his own.... // 💞💞update: go to link in bio for the letterboard and outfit details . . . . #twomonths #ekcmonthbymonth
The fourth trimester is officially over!! We are more in 💞 with this little lady every day! She has become so communicative and grins, giggles and squeals at any excuse - upon eye contact, in response to singing or silly voices. She coos, loves to splash in the tub, and batts and grasps at toys. She loves to nap on her mama in the carrier and is getting better at napping in the bassinet. She graces us with 10+ hours of uninterrupted sleep most every night, so we forgive her erratic day time eating and napping schedule (or lack thereof). She is generally content and only cries (or occasionally shrieks) if something is bothering her. 🌟I've been getting so many questions on her clothing, accessories and props for these monthly photos that I recapped the months and rounded up the details on my site (here or link in bio ---> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos) #ekcmonthbymonth
💞🎉💞4 months!! We love seeing this little lady's personality develop. She's so social - her face lights up whenever we greet her. She is especially delighted by her big brother and by seeing her own face in the mirror. She is easy to entertain. She laughs and squeals at almost anything - especially when we sing to her or make funny noises. She sings and babbles most of the day and rolls easily from tummy to back. She was never a fan of the stroller bassinet, but is now happy in the stroller seat (mama's back is happier this way). She is finally a good eater and it shows in her delicious cheeks. She was sleeping 10-12 hours straight by just past two months but has been hit hard by the four month sleep regression, which we are hoping will pass soon!! Overall, she is content unless something is bothering her! 🌟I've been getting so many questions on her clothing, accessories and props for these monthly photos that I recapped the months and rounded up the details on my site (here or link in bio ---> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos) #ekcmonthbymonth // . . . . . . #fourmonths
Five months! We love this baby to pieces. It's amazing to see her personality develop. She is so easily entertained and intrigued. She will squeal and kick her legs like crazy for most anything. But she gets most excited by her brother's antics. She's also surprisingly tolerant of things he does that I would expect to annoy her (like using her as a pillow). She's really easy going and content, unless she realizes that I've left the building, in which case she can shriek for an hour straight (makes it hard to hire a babysitter). She was a great sleeper but now thinks of 4-6:30 am as the opportune time to practice her singing exercises. I always get loads of questions on her outfits, headbands and props, so I've rounded up the details for all her monthly photos (see link in bio or here --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos) #ekcmonthbymonth #5months #5monthsold #5montholdbaby #sweetscarletblooms
So in denial about my 👶🏻🎀 turning six months that it took me 2 weeks to get these photos up! The little lady is really coming into her own. Some of her favorite activities are snuggling, exploring my face, examining her own feet, engaging with her brother in any and every way, and reading books! . She can now expertly guide her bottle into her mouth and hold it there, and insists on not so expertly feeding herself solids too! Her favorite food is (oddly) chicken liver mixed with pumpkin and she dislikes baby cereal. She takes monster naps (something her brother has never done), but still wakes me up multiple times a night (#mombie here). She is super social and loved when I faced her outward in the carrier on Halloween! She squeals, says gee gee gee all the time, and I could swear greets me with a "hey" on occasion! 🌟🌟🌟 For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio) #ekcmonthbymonth
Seven months with this ginormous bundle of love! 💞💞She is getting to be so interactive! She squeals with delight when she sees her big brother and loves to cuddle with him and play with his hair. The two of them snuggle up in her crib most mornings, and it's the sweetest! She is also really into 📕📗📘📙 books and bangs on them enthusiastically. As with many second children, she has skipped straight past most infant toys and her favorite toy is the activity cube that I always recommend for toddlers (it's in my gift guides, which are linked in my bio). We've been introducing more foods and she loves to feed herself. She particularly enjoys garlic and other strong flavors that you might not expect of a baby. For someone with no words, she is quite good at getting her point across! If I stop singing, she starts singing to encourage me to continue! 🎼🎤 She can now find her pacifier and pop it in even in the dark, so cries less at night. We love her more every day 💞. If she would just consistently sleep well at night, I'd venture to call her an easy baby! 🌟For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio). #ekcmonthbymonth 💞
8 months! This little lady is a bundle of fun. Things that make her squeal and kick are her brother, books 📚 and her favorite foods. She loves to feed herself, which has motivated her to pretty much perfect the pincer grasp to pick up even tiny pieces of food. She was less motivated to sit but can can now sit pretty well. She is generally happy unless you are trying to get her to sleep. And when she cries it sounds like she is saying "yeah, yeah yeah," which would be more amusing if she wasn't crying! One of the kids' favorite activities now is throwing shrieks back and forth and giggling about it uncontrollably. I do my best to keep them from doing it in the elevator, as it must be annoying to others in such a small space!! They really do love 💞 each other and watching them together is our greatest joy! 🌟For outfit, accessory and prop details from this and our other milestone posts, visit --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos (or link in bio). #ekcmonthbymonth
Our sweet 👶🏻 girl turned 9 months on this trip so we took the photos early. She loves to sing and dance and can army crawl across a room. She has a sense of humor and often shrieks and squeals in delight. She has been an A+ traveler, which isn't surprising as she loves being around people and seeing new places and things. Just like her brother, she gets into everything including her 9 month photo props. Holding a 9 month old upside down is our tried and true solution. 🙃 I'm on a recreating photos spree. Check my stories for S upside down at 9 months. #ekcmonthbymonth
Ten months!! This baby is not such a baby anymore! She loves to sing, dance and clap! She's not crawling yet, but always on the move - we needed a lot of props and distractions to keep her in place for these photos. She can army crawl at lightning speed. Her fine motor skills are off the charts, which is amazing but scary as she can get into trouble if we turn around for a second. She mimics words like hi, hey, more, mama and dada. And she still thinks her brother is the funniest, yet fights back when he takes a toy she wants. Still no teeth! But I heard teething is less painful for older babies. http://bit.ly/monthly-photos #ekcmonthbymonth
Our precious little lady 💓👶🏻 is 11 months!! She says haaaaaiiiiii all day, loves to give high fives and snuggle her family and her stuffed animals. Hand her any doll or stuffy and she will find the face and bury her head in it, coming up for air and to let out a haaaaaiiiiii. Her favorite activities are flipping pages of books, listening to music, playing with a ball and eating. She now has two little bottom teeth and one top tooth just starting to poke through. In addition to hi, she says Mama, Dada, nononono and eye. She finds most everything to be funny and I can't think of a better sound than her sweet giggles!! #ekcmonthbymonth For details on this outfit and props and outfits from prior months --> http://bit.ly/monthly-photos
Can't believe our baby is one🎂!! We will be celebrating with family and friends this afternoon! I originally put "party" in quotes and planned on something simple but it's spiraled into something big and (hopefully) 🎉🎈 amazing. Tune into my stories today for more!! This little lady is super social and says haaaiii hundreds of times a day. She loves to wave and give high fives, and enjoys feeding us nearly as much as she loves feeding herself. Some of her favorite activities are emptying the bookshelf and kitchen cabinets. She loves dolls but prefers her brother's toys to baby toys (Paw Patrol is one of her favorite books 🤷🏻♀️).
